Eastwood Primary Care Centre offers a professional and caring service to our 19,600 patients, utilising the skills and enthusiasm of our team members we aim to provide efficient, accessible, friendly and high quality family health care.

We currently have 2 sites, the Church Street site is the Urgent Care Centre for issues that require attention on the day and the Church Walk site is the Planned Care Centre for pre-bookable routine appointments. Staff and clinicians work across both sites.

Our team of clinicians consist of General Practitioners, Advanced Clinical Practitioners, Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Phlebotomists who are all working together to meet the changing demands of primary care.

Our Advanced Clinical Practitioners are experienced clinicians who can assess, diagnose and treat patients, prescribing when indicated and referring for specialist opinions if necessary.

As we are a GP training practice we are involved in the teaching and training of doctors at different stages of their careers, these are GP Registrars.  They are qualified doctors who are engaged in their Postgraduate Training Programme with us at Eastwood Primary Care Centre.

When seeing one of these doctors you may be asked for your consent to video the consultation.  This is part of the doctors' training and is only ever used for teaching and training purposes.

We are also involved in medical student teaching.  As part of their training they are required to see patients.  If you agree to see a Medical Student, they are supervised by a GP from the practice who will oversee your treatment.
